I can see his point with starting with proven 72 MHz stuff. I don't currently plan on flying great distances with FPV but I'm sure that will change. Baby steps. Though I haven't had any issue with the Quad flying on 2.4 control I haven't pushed the distance very far. I really want to get a fixed wing up on FPV but I refuse to do it again without a better control system. With limited funds I have to pick my upgrades wisely. I don't like being tied to the truck so I think the next upgrade will be a screen. After that either 72 MHz gear or a new FPV plane. The Easy* is a great bird but mine is beat up and I'd like more room. I'll also keep an eye out for a higher power 900 MHz Tx as the 1.5 watt really impressed me this past weekend. Clear picture even behind trees and buildings with the stock antenna's. Crazy.
Above all else I want to be safe and preserve the privilege to fly at 3O for everyone. Tooling around FPV with the Quad will keep me happy until I acquire more stuff.
